Testimonial / Gerd Ludwig

We were comparing the results of drum scans with digital camera reproductions of 35mm film using a high quality macro lens and the highest resolution cameras available. The drum scans were not only at least as sharp as the digital camera results but, more importantly, were substantially better in terms of tonality and colour accuracy.

Tim and Charlotte provide a thoroughly professional and very high-quality service and I cannot recommend them too highly.

Testimonial / Chino Moya

I discovered Tim and Charlotte’s company a few years ago and it totally opened up my possibilities working on large format. Not only I could scan my negatives at the best quality without paying extortionate London prices, but also I could have the type of...

I have to say that I have been blown away by the quality of the drum scans that Tim has produced for me. Working from difficult negatives he has made drum scans that amazed me and the printers I work with.

If you are looking for the highest quality scans for your negative or positive film you have come to the right place. The reasons for this are twofold, firstly, Tim Parkin applies the highest degree of technical skill and knowledge in both mounting and scanning to the...

I’ve worked with Bespoke Photographic Services ever since I began to shoot in large-format many years ago. All my exhibitions around the world, with prints as big as 1.5m x 1.8m, are produced with scanned files supplied by them. During this period, Tim and Charlotte...

I’m not saying it’s necessary to have your film drum scanned but why take the time to shoot film for all its worth then cut corners at the last hurdle. The detail a good drum scan pulls from the film is addictive. Highlight and shadow detail that a flatbed scanner can...

Professional Drum Scanning have done an excellent job scanning a number of 6×7 colour negatives for me. These had previously been scanned elsewhere, but the PDS scans have brought out much more detail and are exceptionally clean. They clearly know what they’re...

Testimonial / Lewis Jackson

After the completion of a long term photography project, I was determined to achieve the best possible results from my medium format negatives. I had scan samples from 4 different local services that ranged from full drum scans to virtual drum scans...

The Professional Drum Scanning Lab is the best place that you can find to make your scans at the best price. The quality of the file is simply amazing! A lot of detail in the shadow and in the highlights, the image is naturally sharp and clear, there is no comparison...

Testimonial / Sam Rutter

Tim & Charlotte have smashed all my expectations when it came to receiving my first scan back, the quality and detail obtained from my 6×7 negative is like nothing I’ve seen before. They offer an ingenious ‘free trial’ and I can promise you, you will be...

Personalized service from a highly professional team. I have been using Professional Drum Scanning’s services for many years now and the guys are just awesome to deal with. The high level of professionalism when it comes to photography, digitalizing &...

Testimonial / Alex Gandy

I’m relatively new to analogue photography and have found that getting quality scans is a real challenge. I couldn’t be happier with the service from Tim and Charlotte. My images are shot on 645 negatives and generally dark and contrasty, so noise can be...

Drum Scanners Serviced

Every 18 months we bring Karl Hudson over from Kiel in Germany to service our drum scanners. This weekend Karl spent two days on both of our Heidelberg machines, bringing them up to factory standard conditions. The good news is that both scanners are running fine and...

Testimonial / Noritaka Minami

Tim did a fantastic job scanning my photographs that were shot on 6×9 Ilford Delta 3200. I initially struggled to get satisfactory scans of images shot on this film using a virtual drum scanner (Imacon/Hasselblad). The scans made by Tim with his Heidelberg...

That is truly amazing compared to what I have experienced from other scanners. I will definately get back to you with some...
